Just heard about this Goldman Sachs survey. Why didn’t those overworked analysts just sleep more? Like it’s not that hard? Idk just feels like they’re complaining.

Yeah, all they have to do is also work faster, and they could probably get everything done in 50 hrs instead of 100. Not sure why they didn’t think of that? Then they could have plenty of time for sleep and watching Netflix every night and making 200k+ a year


While I know this is a meme post, it is worth saying:

Someone in a work environment always has a choice. Especially when at a top tier institution like GS.

There’s no reason in life to get unwell over a corporation. Set boundaries and live by them. And if there are consequences for having those boundaries, so be it. In the industries were in, we are all privileged to be relatively able to find new opportunities with ease

Have you tried running for President? We really could do with this sort of critical thinking and problem solving



Seems AH is his/her initials. It’s all over the singles bowl in their post 🤷‍♂️


Hey everyone, sorry I should just clarify, I just don’t understand why it’s so hard for them to just sleep more? Like bro just close your eyes and lay down? Just take some Melatonin instead of making surveys? Sleeping is so easy just like.... do it and stop complaining you know?



“Why are people homeless? Just buy a home duh” - OP, probably


Yes, being an investment banker is just like being homeless!

The ones who slept in got told not to show up the next day. The only ones left are the ones who worked 105 hours a week.


Goldman was so impressed with their attention to work-life balance that they graduated them. Those analysts are now firm alumni.


Do you not have friends in PE or IB? I’m surprised by how many people are unaware of what these analysts do. They aren’t implementing SAP bro


SAP implementer here. I feel personally attacked


The sarcasm is through the roof lol, why are so many ppl triggered


They called you the roof in high school? What did you do




Just heard about this comment. Why didn’t you just choose not to comment? Like it’s not that hard? Idk just feels like you’re complaining.


Lol seriously?? Now I get why some people in here call 45hr work weeks "toxic"




They only got 13 responses. The rest of them were asleep


C must not know what IB is




Hard to have much sympathy for people who knew what they were getting into and chose their career path to make money above all else.


Remember all. Work is a dirty four letter word.


It totally is. When I was living in Orange County, this woman on my beach flag football team told me that she inherited stock at 18 and had never worked. 😱

This working hard and taking risks stuff is for suckers. I'm going to be born rich next life.


Why are they complaining? Like if certain situations in life don’t make you happy, there’re always options to walk away and do something else you know.


OP is hilarious 😂😂😂😂😂

Bro you amazing for doing this


OP reminds me of that one interview where Musk provides the solution to all of China's energy needs.


Why don’t hungry people just eat? It’s so simple 😒

A little tip for the pivoting fishes: if you’re curious about a world, look at their meme pages.
It sounds dumb, but it helps you see what’s it like and an insight on said world.

Example: ex lawyer looking to get into HR. If you go look into HR memes pages on Instagram, and whatnot, you can see what are the running gags of HR, what are the annoying things, what are the fun things, what you can expect, etc.

Helped me a lot during my pivot! Hope this helps :)
